I would like to send a confirmation email when a macro is run. The macro is run automatically via a script and it run unattended.

In my testing I am able to send an email via Outlook from the macro, however it requires an answer to a deny or allow prompt.  How can I get the email sent without manual intervention?

I use a third party application called vbMAPI.  Don't remember how much it cost, but it was reasonable.  There is also the CDO method, but I've never used it.

I've used Outlook Redemption with much success to eliminate that problem.

Is there any way to send email from access without a third party?  My employer will not support any downloads or additional apps.

When I dealt with this issue a while back ... Outlook will not let you dump emails into it without flagging each one ... It thinks this is SPAM.  Therefore, your options or to use a third party application, CDO Method or the Outlook Redemption option to bypass the security prompt.

The obnoxious Object Model Guardian appears to have been revived with a recent update.  See my article on using the Redemption Library to avoid it.
